PhD grant to study IWM for Alopecurus myosuroides control in UK
At the University of Lincoln, UK, a 4 year PhD Studentship is available to UK and international students, starting September 2022. Closing date for Applications is 29th July.
The PhD student will work on the important aspect of weed seed biology; focusing on our key UK grass-weed (blackgrass, Alopecurus myosuroides) and comparing with emerging problem grass-weeds of regenerative agriculture. The project will help us to understand in detail the fate of weed seeds post-shedding and how management practice might change to promote seed losses as part of an improved Integrated Weed Management approach.
